The stock market is one of the best places to invest your money for the long-term.
When I say long-term, that means you should be willing to let your money “sleep” and grow for at least 5 years or more – the longer, the better.
Also, if you cannot commit to study and time the stock market, then the best investing strategy is to do cost averaging, and these Philippine stocks should be your top buys, as recommended by my stock broker COL Financial.
But before any else!
You have to understand that investing in the stock market are only for those who are already well-informed about how it works, and more importantly – those who already have proper financial protection.
